This is about the most underwhelming performance I have ever heard... if not THE most underwhelming performance. A completely forgettable show that's as sharp as a butter knife. It's the first time I've ever given one star to The Boyz - and that's saying allot! Though, honestly, I usually don't bother with reviewing lifeless shows or anything after '84. The only reason I am is because of the silly little two minute Stars & Stripes Forever ditty at the end of the show I've never heard before.
This show reminds me of the very mellow year of 1974 (without the intensity) that always reminds me of group quaalude enhancement. I'm still trying to find the right word? Moribund? Stillborn? It's sad to say that the only interesting thing in this comatose sleeper is the Stars & Stripes. And I'm hard pressed to find something to mix it with to add to the collection.
Next Day's Postmortem: Jeepers, that pan was sure harsh!? After going through the show and separating out the dogs and adding allot of reverb to the iffy vocals, I was able to salvage 145 minutes of tunes. That's much more than I was expecting after an initial listening. So, I'll be kind this afternoon and give the band two stars (Sure wouldn't want to end up in the dog house being such a party pooper. Much prefer the cat house ;^). Party on!

lesh is a standout here. runs, fills, some lush lesh for all you lesh lushes. i've been diggin on lots of 1977 lately, which has some great jerry time, but coming back here to 72, 73, 74, the vocals are much shinier. consistent bang-on harmonies.
i have this show bookmarked. great setlist, solid playing.
